Blender virgin seeks UK mentor

I’m a lighting designer just moving away from doing big shows to do emotion driven architectural lighting design for domestic use.
I love the look of Blender but I’m crap at reading manuals and tutorials.
Looking for a Blender expert to show me the ropes. I’m in Gloucester in the UK, so anyone that fancies giving me some training (paid), I can travel, please email me on [email protected]
Looking forward to hearing from some of you soon, so I can get cracking with the fab Blender!
Cheers, John:)
